Homelander hangs up his cape and picks up the Adamantium claws.
The Boys star Antony Starr becomes Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine successor in a new concept design for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Although he can currently be seen terrorizing the United States in The Boys, Antony Starr is the latest actor fans want to see as Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine replacement for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Starr has impressed The Boys fans with his intimidating and intense portrayal of the villainous superhero Homelander, something that has led to many to watch his roles in other shows like the crime drama Banshee.
The Boys star Antony Starr had previously revealed that he’d love to play Wolverine, but was careful to note that Hugh Jackman was brilliant in the role. Digital artist ‘spdrmnkyxxiii’ created a stunning piece of fan art that puts Starr in an incredible tactical set of Wolverine armor for the role. The yellow and black design looks like something that would fit right in with the MCU. The artist briefly referred back to Antony Starr’s vicious performance in Banshee in the caption to argue why he’d be a great choice to replace Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. Take a look below.

Here is the official synopsis for the second season of The Boys:
The even more intense, more insane season two finds The Boys on the run from the law, hunted by the Supes, and desperately trying to regroup and fight back against Vought. In hiding, Hughie (Jack Quaid), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Capon) and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) try to adjust to a new normal, with Butcher (Karl Urban) nowhere to be found. Meanwhile, Starlight (Erin Moriarty) must navigate her place in The Seven as Homelander (Antony Starr) sets his sights on taking complete control. His power is threatened with the addition of Stormfront (Aya Cash), a social media-savvy new Supe, who has an agenda of her own. On top of that, the Supervillain threat takes center stage and makes waves as Vought seeks to capitalize on the nation’s paranoia.
The Boys stars Karl Urban Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Kapon, Karen Fukuhara, and Nathan Mitchell. So far, the series has added Goran Visnjic and Claudia Doumit for season two.
